Who says that fur and water don't mix? Christopher Bailey, who went positively furry at Burberry this season with shaved mink coats, Astrakhan drivers' caps, fur T-shirts and cowhide-printed fur jackets, proved that a late fall shower is nothing he can't conquer. After all, Burberry knows a thing or two about how to dress in a thunderstorm. So for his finale, in which the models were drenched in a waterfall of rain that tumbled in a perfect vertical line from the ceiling (and which was miraculously and simultaneously seeped up by special drains built into the runway), the fur-clad models were safely ensconced in clear plastic rain slickers with black leather trim. If the audience had any doubts about the efficiency of Burberry's products against the elements, they were certainly put to ease with this clever demonstration. Our choice for slip-proof evening shoes? The black patent leather hiking boots with a white creeper sole.
